Summary

Devils Hunt is pinned as an action game that looked like a devil may cry/dark souls type game. In eventuality what you get is a very bare-bones adventure game with very simple combat actions. Shame as the game starts off strong with a massive boss fight and fast-paced intro. That dissipates quickly and you are instead treated to constant cutscenes interruptions giving a few broken lines of dialogue then a few fighting encounters then a cutscene. All this with bad performance issues such as stuttering and screen tearing. The whole experience is just instantly forgettable with nothing noteworthy or memorable at all. It looks the part in screenshots but in movement, it is not good and when you add that to all the other issues listed, Devil’s hunt is not a game I can say is worth your time in its current state.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
